Killer Mountain by NH Author Peter Pinkham
The threat of attack from foreign terrorists bent on damage to the US has hung over the nation for years, bringing fear to many, opportunity for profit to others.
Killer Mountain begins with Preston Sturgis, a Boston developer and lower echelon drug dealer, who mistakenly learns a deadly secret and flees for his life to his lawyer, Wally Carver, in Bartlett, NH. Former Carver son-in-law, Hudson Rogers, and his new wife, Cilla, are innocently pulled into the murderous pursuit when the gang attempts to kidnap Cilla, more skilled at self-defense than they know. Failing to capture her, the relentless hunters destroy the Rogers’ Bartlett home. Hudson decides he must go on the offensive. A clue to the source of the assaults leads him to Washington’s Mt. Rainier. And trouble.
Meanwhile, New England is in for its own horrifying assault. Six envelopes are delivered simultaneously, one to each New England governor. The letter enclosed reads: by March 17 at noon, six billion dollars must be placed in a Swiss bank account or thousands of New Englanders will die. A hoax? For proof of their ability to follow through, the writer claims responsibility for an unsolved massacre in Massachusetts, revealing information only the perpetrator would know. Panicked, New Englanders clog the roads and airports in an effort to escape.
When Cilla realizes where Hudson has gone, she recognizes the danger he may be in and follows his trail. Her search leads to an astounding revelation, that she may know how to find the key to the New England extortionists. And may be faced with the horrifying decision of either saving the lives of thousands of New Englanders, or her husband.
Killer Mountain is a fast-paced, suspense thriller with plenty of action. If you haven’t noted the clues as you read along, the ending may surprise you.
"With his new book, Peter Pinkham has crafted an exciting thriller ... fast-paced action through the White Mountains!"
